So the question here is, why would you buy anything else but slightly-used or year-old GM?

P.S. The 'comparison' cars are there for the sake of illustrating relative price, not exactly for direct competition.

Well now...let's be logical. Why would *anyone* buy a Terraza period? Plus no one looking at an Accord or TSX would take a 2nd look at DTS.

My sentiments exactly :P

It's a valid point though. I'd much rather prefer a Grand Prix over a Corolla or a SRX to a Pilot.

Expect the Terraza...I would have no problem buying any of those GMs slightly

used....

I tend to keep my cars a while anyways...

Like the GP color...

I don't need to make money on my cars..

Dammit Fly, now you've gotten me to search my local AutoTrader and BuySell looking at Awesome General Motors vehicles with "crappy" depreciation.

I used to hate 4th Gen F-Bodies, and now I'm partial to them... :blink:

Why would I want a Lacrosse when I can get a BMW 540? (cheaper actually...in betwen that and the grand prix now probably)...

Because its new with extrodinarily low mileage and full factory warranty. I'm comparing among new or virtually new cars here.

None of the GM cars he linked had more than 4,000 miles on them.

That's odd...

* Never been in an accident

* Never had any body work

* Never had any paint work

* Never been registered

Yet a salvage title?

How could it be... Katrina happened in 2005, that Ion is 2007...

Maybe it fell off the carrier during transit.

Oh, I didn't know which car he was talking about...

I suppose it's possible that it fell of the transport, but I think that would have required body work. It could just be wrong.

That is very similar to what my father bought, without the rims. Same colour, and also low mileage.

As far as the "falling off the truck" argument - I saw a Cobalt being delivered to a Chevy dealership on the weekend. The rest of the truck was all filled with DCX products, with the Cobalt on the very back. When he took the Cobalt off, he first extended a hydraulic section on the back, then extended some metal sliders by hand. When he left, he put the metal sliders back in, but he didn't pull the hydraulic section back in. When leaving the dealership he scraped the ground and the Dodge Nitro on the top back jumped around horribly. I really thought it was going to fall off the truck. Dumbass...

Our friends just bought a slightly used Terraza and love it. I drove it the other day and find it to be one of the best minivans I've driven. The outside has something to be desired, but the inside is nice and it drives pretty good, especially for a minivan.

I can see getting the SRX or the LaCrosse, but the others...? Fly, what are you smoking? :P

Think about it. Lots of old people buy Honda Accords.... why wouldn't they also consider a DTS?

You buy an Accord because you have to, but you buy a DTS because you want to.
